're not directly getting at that. >> i think the carbon tax makes enormous sense to do with the environment impact of energy use. you can design one in a way that does not cause too much harm for american industries that compete with folks abroad. consumption tax, there are things you can do to treat the income tax to make it look more like a consumption tax. >> i want each of you to give me your thoughts at the end of the day, what do you think the tax code will look like with his conversations between the cop -- between the president speaker boehner are done? >> i think we will have slightly higher marginal tax rates on some high-income tax -- and these 1 high income tax payer. i think there will be a variety of tax exclusions and deductions that are scaled back modestly. >> if scaled-back means capped in some way, i agree completely. rex i think we will see some of those things will back. the top rate will be either 39.6 or 35. it will be somewhere in between. >> we have some common ground here among our economists. thank you, a gentleman for joining us. thank you all. i appreciate the peterson
the global environment is much more difficult. see what's happening in europe, in the middle east, in china. second of all, you just had an election, and one of the messages of the election was one of shared responsibility and fairer burden sharing, in which the rich have done extremely well not just on the outside but also in terms of being protected on the down side. finally, and more importantly, the economic arguments against this, while they would be valid at higher tax rates are not valid here. so if you look at the hand the president has, it is stronger than the republicans', and i think both of them will want to seek some sort of compromise. >> it sounds so reasonable. let's bring in steve warren. he's an editor at the wall street journal, a conservative. steven, do you agree, are the republicans ready to strike a deal with the president if it means giving up the bush tax cuts for the wealthy? they have dug in on this. >> i don't know, ali. i listen to this conversation and i feel like i'm living in france. i see no economic wisdom in raising tax rates in an economy that is so fragi

, as does my environment just by nature. so the book is very much about our landscape, how we perceive it as fascinating in our youth and how over time it changes. the same substance -- stone, rock, water, wood -- go from being the unknown, worthy of curiosity, to at some point being a threat. and the natural defiance of us living our lives, which is in defiance of our mortality all the way from childhood where we're immortal to our elder years where we become the thing that holds so many people we've lost and is what survives. memory is what survives. and within that memory the afterlife of so much. so thank you. [applause] >> good afternoon. i'd also like to thank the organizers of the miami book fair for having me. when i started writing my book a year or two ago, i certainly did not expect i would end up here or seated on a panel with these gentlemen. i think what we've heard so far is that a lot of war stories represent a need to explain. why was there an outpost where there should never have been an outpost? what's the context within my own war experience? who was i before i went
